Year 5

Class Teacher:
Miss Cooke

Welcome to Year 5!

Welcome back to the Summer term and I hope you had a great Easter break. We have an exciting term ahead including our ‘Living History’ session at Tatton Park, in June, focussing on the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings!

PE Swimming sessions will be held at Royton Pool on a Tuesday afternoon. Your child will need to bring a towel, (an optional brush or comb); a swimming hat if hair is past shoulders (this includes boys if hair meets the requirements as long hair can get in the eyes) and a costume (one piece for girls) or trunks/shorts (above the knee for boys). Please do not send toiletries such as talcum powder, deodorant etc.

Spellings will be given out on Fridays and will be tested the following Friday. I will also upload them to this page. The common exception words (below) are the spellings that your child is expected to know by the end of the year.

Reading Please try to read for at least 10 minutes daily with your child. I would like to see your child’s reading record at least once per week, and books can be changed when required.

Please come back to our class page regularly for updates about your child’s learning and if you need to contact me, please press the button on the right and start your message FAO Miss Cooke. Alternatively, contact the office and leave a message. I will get back to you as quickly as I can.
